All the current Australian players are complete shit. None of them are worth a turd in hell. They might as well be dropped, castrated, and made to dance for coins.
Like this time last year, the only way to fix the Australian team is by picking ex players who are performing in the IPL.
Last year it was Shane Warne and Adam Gilchrist, this year Matthew Hayden has been added to the list.
It seems that if the Australian team fails, the only way forward is back.
Look at all the runs Gilly is making, never mind his keeping.
Haydos is smashing the ball everywhere, forget his form in 2008.
And Shane Warne is still killing everyone, who cares that he doesn’t really want to come back.
Articles about how great these guys are doing in a semi domestic league are counter productive and tinged with bullshit.
Yes Hayden is making runs, but he has the weight of failing for Australia taken off his shoulders, he is facing 3rd and 4th string Indian bowlers in most of the attacks and it’s an Entertainment league
It has a scheduled ad break for fucks sake.
I am glad the old Australians are doing well, like I was that Ian Harvey was the player of the tournament in the ICL, and that Michael DiVenuto continues to kill in County cricket.
Not sure I want any of them to come back though.
This was the same tournament that Shane Watson dominated so much last year it could have been renamed in his honour.
Hayden, Gilchrist and Warne have all been warriors for Australia, but lets not compare the new breed to them, lets just let them play.
Let the dead be the dead.
We will remember them, no need to reanimate them.
